Only (with) others are we


The project »Only (with) others are we« is part of a larger project "Strengthening Educational Staff's Social and Civic Competences" funded by the Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, and the European Social Fund.

During the program’s period (2016–2021) and with the help of external collaborators, the Slovenian Migration Institute and the Educational Research Institute will carry out free of charge, five 16-hour professional training: 1) Living the Diversity: Immigrant Inclusion and Slovene Language; 2) Zero tolerance for violence: Challenges and Issues; 3) Respectful communication and Conflict Management; 4) The Challenges of modern Society in Education; 5) Intercultural Relations and Integration in Education Practice.

The aim of the project is to train 10,000 expert workers and leaders in the fields of preschool education, primary school education, primary musical education, vocational and technical education, general secondary education, education of children and youth with special needs, education in student dormitories and adult education. Training are being carried out on three levels: 1) regional training across Slovenia (in all 12 statistical regions); 2) national training in the premises of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, twice a year; 3) training for complete preschool / primary school / secondary school teaching staff in individual schools.

The project »Only (with) others are we« will identify good practices, inform the public of its results and their relation to the Directives of the European Parliament, and disseminate useful materials among the training participants and the broader public. One of the program goals is to create online professional and educational materials as well as an interactive online lecture room that will be publicly accessible on the program’s webpage.
